U.S. pullout from Syria to be done in 'prudent' way

U.S. pullout from Syria to be done in 'prudent' way

In addition to explaining Washington's policy on Syria and reassuring its allies, especially Saudi Arabia, that the USA is not giving up on plans to isolate Iran, Bolton and Pompeo will also give time to discuss the Palestine-Israel "situation".

"A risk averse president who makes new policy by tweet or phone call surrounded by risk-ready advisers who run cleanup, don´t respect deliberation and have objectives that aren´t clear or attainable equals USA policy (or lack of it) in Syria".

In a telephone conversation with Trump last month, Erdogan had asked why the USA president just didn't withdraw American troops entirely and let Turkey finish the job in Syria where, he added, Islamic State had been eradicated.

"We've won against Isis", he said at the time.

Joseph Dunford met in Ankara Monday and Tuesday with his Turkish counterpart, Gen. Yasar Guler, and Defense Minister Hulusi Akar on the planned USA ground troop withdrawal from Syria, according to a readout of the meeting from the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The FBI has said about 300 Americans have left or tried to leave America to join ISIS.

In Jerusalem on Monday, Bolton listed pre-withdrawal "objectives" - including the final defeat of Islamic State and protection of Kurdish allies - that went well beyond Trump's simple assertion that U.S. forces were heading home from Syria.

The killing led the U.S. Senate to vote to suspend U.S. support to the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen, as well as condemn Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the act.

The latest batch of captured foreigners, who came under surveillance while plotting attacks on civilians, were captured during raids carried out by SDF special operations teams on Sunday and Monday, the YPG said. Aside from the American, the other fighters captured were from Russia, Germany, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan denounced visiting US National Security Adviser John Bolton on Tuesday for suggesting that protecting the Kurds would be a pre-condition of the US withdrawal, a suggestion Erdogan called "a serious mistake".

Israeli officials have confirmed this information in recent remarks warning of Hezbollah's massive array of armaments on Israel's northern border. In contrast to other USA allies, Turkey can point to major sacrifices it has made in the struggle against Daesh in Syria, which Erdogan did when referencing the bloody Al Bab campaign of 2016/2017 in his New York Times article. "We will not compromise".

However, it is not yet clear how this can happen, since it will require a decision of the Arab League to annul a previous decision adopted in the heyday of the Arab Spring that froze Syria's membership of the Arab organisation in protest against its aggressive quelling of then peaceful demonstrations for democracy.

In its 30-year terrorist campaign, the PKK has taken some 40,000 lives, including women and children.

Moreover, last week, Mike Pompeo announced that Iran would face economic and diplomatic consequences if it continues to pursue plans to conduct three space launches in the coming months. Those convicted received sentences averaging about 10 years, but many have received leniency for cooperating with authorities and offering information on ISIS, he said.

The Syrian Kurds "have governed a population of about 2 million people with a degree of respect for religious freedom, gender equality and minority rights unknown in that part of the world", said French philosopher and human-rights advocate Bernard-Henri Lévy and co-author Thomas S. Kaplan in an opinion column for The Washington Post. All but one of them were elementary school-aged children who had not been involved in acts of violence.

What makes the case for the teen captured unique is he has been described as a "foreign fighter", Hughes said, Stars and Stripes reported.
